This zesty cuvée made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir boasts a creamy and yeasty complexity. The palate is quite rich initially until the cool-climate Tasmanian acidity kicks in to leave a perfect balance. 


Vineyard Region: Tasmania
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 12%
Colour: The Pirie Vintage is showing bright, golden colours with hints of green at the edges.
Aroma: There is some lovely lemon zest on the nose that is underlined by creamy and yeasty complexity.
Palate: The palate is quite rich initially until the cool-climate Tasmanian acidity kicks in to leave a perfect balance.
Peak Drinking: Until 2023

Recommended food pairings: The perfect accompaniment to a range of canapés including freshly shucked oysters and lightly char-grilled calamari with a lemon infused mayonnaise. Or try it with pan-fried salmon fillets with a fresh garden salad and a caper olive oil dressing.

Growing Conditions: The grapes used to make this wine were grown in the cool-climate vineyards of northern Tasmania. The wine is a blend of Chardonnay 51% and Pinot Noir 49%. The grapes were handpicked and whole-bunch pressed with the fruit harvested from late February to early April 2012 at 10.0 to 11.0 baumé.

Winemaker: Tom Wallace

Winemaking notes: The wine was made in strict adherence to the traditional method techniques with 100% of the wine undergoing malo lactic fermentation, and a long, slow secondary fermentation in the bottle. It spent 5 years resting on lees prior to disgorging and dosage. The wine has an alcohol of 12.0%, a pH of 3.02, an acid level of 7.4g/L.
